Premier League clubs’ attempt to close the transfer window early this summer backfired very well as some of them were left with little to no time to complete their major transfers.
One of the teams who voted for the window to close early before the new season kicked off, Tottenham, had to end the summer without making a single signing. That however, may be about to change.
Reports on Sun Sports claims that the Premier League teams are set to meet from this month and their primary goals collectively would be to shift the transfer window closing date back to August 31st, the same date as the rest of Europe.
In the last transfer window, European clubs took advantage of the Premier League window closing window closing early by waiting for the end of the window to start poaching players from their Premier League rivals.
One of the most high profile moves that could have gone through after the Premier League window had closed, was Paul Pogba’s transfer to Barcelona.
The proposal for a change of date has to be initiated by a club, and then it must be supported by 14 other teams for it to go through.
